Forum: forums Subject: Re: Some problems of accessing the internet archive

It is my fault not to explain my need clearly :). I’m doing some research about information retrieval, and find that the “internet Archive” has collected a considerable number of web pages and provided users with plenty of tools. I want to extract some special URLs from the pages. In the “Example Code” page of the “Research Access” subdirectory, I get a very useful project applying to my problem. The name of the project is “Create list of URLs containing keyword”. However I can not make this project work, because I could not connect to the servers which are storing all the data. I have tried to ping the address “research.archive.org”, but I failed. The address could not be reached. Another problem faced me is that I can not exhaustedly understand the descriptions in the page of “http://www.archive.org/web/researcher/data_available.php”. Could you do me a favor to conduct me to fetch those data? Thank you!

this page says that researcher access is 'temporary' down (since 2002?). no wonder you can't connect.

did you try e-mailing info(at)archive(dot)org? they could give you more direct answers.

Yes, I have tried this way. However, by now, I have received none answer from them. Therefore I try to get some assistances from the forum and hope to find some other way to utilize those resource. It would be extremely regret to leave those precious data resource unutilized. I am really eager to find some way to make full use of the precious. And thank you for your answers again :)
